Redfall: Fight for Survival by Jay J. Falconer

A disgraced intelligence expert. A survivalist collective. When the red rain falls, the world won't be far behind...

After his wife turned terrorist, Simon Redfall thought his life couldn't get any worse. On the lam and all alone, Redfall risks his life to attend the public execution of the woman he once loved. The only reward for his sympathy is an angry mob trying to tear him to shreds.

When a deluge of red rain begins to fall, Redfall is pulled to safety by eccentric preppers and asked to join their mission to uncover a global weather conspiracy smothering the planet. As the red storm clouds spread, so does trouble when power grids falter, militants weaponize, and world leaders start pointing fingers.

Redfall and his team have one chance to expose the mastermind controlling the red rain. If they fail before the last drop falls, an all-out war may just destroy mankind.

Redfall is a fast-paced post-apocalyptic thriller series. If you like edge-of-your-seat action, high-stakes suspense, and global conspiracies, then you'll love Jay J. Falconer's gritty survival series.

I was given a free copy of this book in return for an honest review. First off, I'm a big fan of the author. Every single book and story I have read have been amazing and I was so excited to read this one too! Unfortunately, I was silly enough to read book 2 of the series first, which I would advise against. You won't know a lot of the pre-story and not that it made it a bad book for me, but you will get much more out of the whole series reading in order. Anyhow! As usual, no fiddling about, you get thrown in right in the midst of the story. And the first chapter will send shivers down your spine, I promise you. What we're introduced to is probably one of the most cold-blooded shows the modern society could think of. It is the most powerful chapter of the book for me. I could feel Simon's pain in every word as the pay-per-view was unfolding. As the book progresses from then on we get introduced to other key characters. While the chapters are short, the main story is way too interesting and I have to admit the chapters not about Simon felt a tiny bit slower, I just wanted to know what's going on with him! I really like how fast paced everything is, there's lots of action, lots of shocking parts, it's very emotional and crazy, it will make your mind race with questions and the details are perfect. If you are interested in guns and things like that you will appreciate all the work the author has put into researching this. Just to warn any future readers, the book is so good you'd have to set a day or two dedicated to reading it. Simply because there's no putting it down! My favourite part is, that everything is in a very believable setting for the current world we live in. It makes the book really stand out and I felt like I was a part of everything and it was happening right before my eyes. From what I've read from the series so far (that is book 1 and 2) I highly recommend them! I believe they deserve to be turned into a movie too and I know I'd be the first one in line to watch it. A skillfully written book, by a very skillful author. Worth every single penny you'd spend on it!

I was given a free copy of this book in return for an honest review. This is the second series from this author that I get to read and I enjoyed it almost as much as the other one. However I have to admit that if anyone asked me to tell him the whole story short it would be rather difficult for me or at least it would take me a lot of time. The reason is there are so many character and events that are happening at the same time and with every new chapter the readers is presented with something new that it was quite difficult to follow for some time. All the detailed descriptions of weapons towards the end of the book were a little boring for me but that's probably because I'm a girl and I don't know much about stuff like that. Anyway I was really impressed with the way the Pandora place is organised. I think I liked Tally the best - somehow she brings some freshness in the whole apocalyptic picture and I believe she would team with her brother again soon or at least I hope so. Another thing I liked was how that guy Austin firmly followed Wyatt's "stop for nothing" orders and hopefully he will continue to do it. I'm really curious what would happen with the rain because I expected to see it influence on people's behavior or health. I would be happy to read book number two and to find out more about Simon's wife as well - I can only begin to imagine how a person could feel in his situation but I know he's right - one will blame himself forever if they know they left the ones they love to be executed.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for reading it, rating it, and giving an honest review. The writing flows smoothly and the story is well-edited. Like this author’s Glassford Girl series, there’s a lot of action and mystery. I liked the fast pace and did not want to put this book down once I started it. Luckily, it’s fairly short so it was easy to finish in a few hours. I found the characters to be realistic and multi-dimensional. There was also some realism added by the familiar places, companies, and common prepper planning tactics that were mentioned. I generally like TEOTWAWKI type apocalypse and post-apocalyptic world stories. I enjoy thinking about the ‘maybe’ scenarios as I read. The red rain seems to make a good nature vs character scenario but I ended the book without being sure exactly what caused it. I’m also pretty liberal so I don’t like the implications that legalizing marijuana and a few other minor things began the slide into chaos. The story itself was good if you’re willing to just accept the scenario as written but there was a little too much suspension of disbelief for me to be entirely happy with it. This book ends on a serious cliffhanger ending and I was not pleased to get to that ending without having the second book ready to begin. I understand that cliffhangers bring the readers back for book two but ending in the middle of a fight scene is TOO much uncertainty for me. It feels too abrupt.

This wonderful book pulls you in right from the beginning and in parts grabs you by the heart strings. Although it is a little hard to follow in some parts, each stage of the book is just so interesting and energizing that you keep wanting to turn the pages to see what will happen. I was filled with so much emotion that I went from being sad, sorrowful, angry and excited then back to sad again. There is so much energy throughout the book that it helps you to feel a part of what the characters are going through and how they feel at each stage of the book. I really can't wait to read the second part and I think that may be the only thing I didn't like about it is that I have to wait to finish knowing what happened to all of these great characters. I really wasn't sure when I first saw this book if I would like it or not, but was pleasantly surprised by how I was just pulled in to it. I really can't wait to find out what will be done with the Red Rain and if Wyatt will make it out of the mess that he is in at the end of this one, or if they will find Simon and will he go with them? This part leaves you with so many questions that anyone who reads it will just have to pick up part two. I urge anyone to give this book a read.

Reviewed by Janelle Fila for Readers' Favorite Redfall: Fight for Survival (American Prepper Series Book 1) by Jay J. Falconer is a dystopian fiction story about the collapse of society. Simon Redfall arrives in Washington, D.C. to witness the execution of his wife. It is society’s first pay-per-view execution. At the same time, a red storm cloud appears and drops acid rain across the country. The frightening new weather phenomenon sends the country back into the dark ages — no travel, no cell phones or communication, no electric or power grid. With the world plunging into chaos around him, Simon uses his former special ops training to survive. He partners with a group of similar survivalists and tries to determine the meaning of this weather phenomenon, because when the red rain stops falling, Simon realizes that the worst is still to come. After the last of the rain falls, it will be too late for Simon and his new friends to stop what is coming next. Redfall: Fight for Survival is an action story that never lets up the intensity. It is a constant flow of action followed by the characters' reactions and both escalate as the story progresses. Falconer pulls you right into the story with his gritty and strong characters. The characters are well-rounded, excellently written, and have an authentic feel that shows the level of advancement Falconer has in his craft. There’s just enough mystery within the story to keep the action moving in the right direction, and plenty of adrenaline and speed!

Reviewed by Brit Rossie for Readers' Favorite Redfall: Fight for Survival by Jay Falconer is an unnerving thriller whose gruesome opening scene sets the tone and the pace for what Former Special Ops and survivalist Simon Redfall must face as the world descends into chaos with the onset of a strange red rain. Battling his own demons and recovering from the trauma and drama of his wife's death, he finds himself at the mercy of a small band of preppers who rescue him from an angry mob seeking further recompense for his wife’s actions. Finding the opportunity to put his specials skills to use with his rescuers and moving forward from his past, Redfall and his new companions learn that the eerie blood-like rain falling on every major landmass is not just a freak phenomena but a potentially engineered one with sinister motives. Everyone likes a good conspiracy theory but Jay takes it to the next level with his red rain, advanced technology theories, daunting weather phenomenon, and apocalyptic obstacles that these characters must overcome. This is the first book in the series and it’s not for the faint of heart. There is a lot of stage setting and character introductions for such a complex plot, which is necessary, but there is less story development. However, I think you’ll find that it whets your appetite, as it did mine, to know more about Redfall, the red rain, and the preppers that resist the conspiracy which threatens to wipe them all out ... to be revealed in book 2.

Reviewed by Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite Simon Redfall is at a loose end. After roaming the country, staying off the grid, he has returned to Washington to find closure. He thought the much televised execution of his wife, who was caught on camera mass killing a bus load of scientists, would help bring closure. But it didn't. As she called out to him in her last moments before the effects of the brutal execution tortured her body, strangling the life out of her, he felt an intense pain engulf him. Trying to flee the public place where he observed the execution, he is recognized and the crowd, still bloodthirsty for revenge, takes it out on him. An unlikely rescue, just as the sky opens up to a torrential downpour of red rain, leads him to a compound in the very isolated Pennsylvanian countryside - Amish land. This isn't just Simon's story. The entire continent, in fact all of the major continents on the globe are covered by red clouds and drenched by red rain. It doesn't look good and no one knows what's happening. Communication, satellites, air travel - so much is affected by this weather event and there is a belief that this might be the beginning of an Armageddon. We don't know all the details or the outcome because author Jay J. Falconer leaves the reader hanging at the end of Redfall: Fight for Survival (American Prepper Series Book 1). A battle in Amish country leaves behind a blood bath that suggests more will follow. And the red rain continues to cover the earth. There is a strong plot line here and good characterization. In fact, the plot seems to end on the climax. However, this is a great end-of-the-world page turner/thriller which will hopefully meet some resolution in the second book in the series.

Reviewed by Renee Taylor for Readers' Favorite Redfall: Fight for Survival (American Prepper Series Book 1) by Jay J. Falconer is a dystopian tale high on action, mystery, and intrigue. Simon Redfall is a former Special Ops operative. His wife is being executed in the first ever pay per view execution because she is accused of the mass murder of innocent people. And Simon, who is a survivalist, is being hunted by angry mobs and the government. But when a strange red rain starts falling from the sky, Simon might be more of an asset than a liability. Travel is halted and communications are impossible as the rain knocks out grid after grid. When Simon connects with a group of similarly minded survivalists, he starts to get some answers. But what he discovers is almost as impossible to comprehend. The red rain is only the beginning, and what comes next is far, far worse than anyone imagined. Redfall: Fight for Survival is a really well-written story that crosses so many genres that it is sure to please everyone! It is so much more than a sci fi story. It has mystery and suspense, action and sorrow. There are corrupt governments, secrets, lies, death, fights, and of course, action! Once this story starts it never stops, which is a great way to read a story like this. Falconer is incredibly talented at writing this world and his characters. I felt like they were real people, struggling with real issues, and I was so immersed in the world that I worried for these characters like they were my own friends.

Reviewed by JJ Phillips for Readers' Favorite Redfall: Fight for Survival (American Prepper Series Book 1) by Jay J. Falconer is an action story about a new weather phenomenon that threatens to destroy all of humanity. The story starts in a terrible dystopian world. The media broadcasts sanctioned government executions, including the execution of the main character Simon Redfall’s wife. The end of the world started with the legalization of marijuana. Legalized prostitution and gambling followed next. The terrible execution of Simon’s wife sets the stage for how dark and scary the world has become. But it gets worse when a deadly rain starts to fall and threatens to destroy whatever civilization remains on the planet. Communication is knocked out and travel almost completely stops. Simon joins a group of survivalists looking for answers. What is the end game? What do they want? Who is behind it? And how can Simon stop it? Redfall: Fight for Survival is an awesome action and dystopian tale that is dark, gritty, and scary because it could be so real. It has an authentic tone that really scared me, as a reader, because I feared for my own safety. What if the things written in this tale come true? Knowing that I was reading a piece of fiction, but was still so moved to think about my impending future, means that Falconer is a master writer who excels at his craft. I loved the characters in this story and the mystery behind the rain. I couldn't put the book down until I knew how it ended.

I was given a free copy of this book in return for an honest review. This was a very interesting and intriguing read. Jay J. Falconer invited us into a world full of heroes, fighters and acronyms (some quite real and some fictional). The flow of the story runs smoothly in many different parallels, giving us a broader picture of what is happening. All of the characters, no matter what part they play in the plot, are well formed and described. Everybody has a voice in the book. I liked Simon's story most as it unraveled around what seems to be the central character, whom everybody is seeking out and needs. It is easy and fast to make your way through the book, as the writer's style is accessible and pleasant to relate to. The only point I had doubts about is the possibility of Simon's excessive attention towards Wicks - there is some romantic tension, which is right out of pace in this book. All things considered, Redfall has just lost his wife in an inhuman way due to her contribution to what seems to be an unjust and unproved series of murders. It is yet unclear of what is going on in the world but everything points to an exciting and unexpected explanation in the further books of the series. Redfall: Book 1 is full of twists, conspiracies and surprisingly realistic prognosis of the nearest future. The backdrop is believable and the story is well developed making us see the fictional, corporate world through the writer's perspective. Plenty of dialogue and funny lines fill the characters up with plenty for readers to discover. I cannot wait to see how the story progresses. Will Tally's brother survive the attack and how will the team of teenagers joined by Simon solve the mystery rain?

I was given a free copy of this book in return for an honest review. In this Falconer novel the reader is introduced to a near dystopian world where the media are broadcasting executions sanctioned by governments worldwide, in order to make money. In the first chapter you are told that this all started when they legalized marijuana which led to legalizing prostitution and gambling. It's an interesting concept, but also a tad unbelievable, but it is fiction after all. The protagonist, Simon, has to watch the televised execution of his wife, knowing that she is somehow guilty of the mass murder of innocent people. Her gruesome execution sets the tone for the book and just how far this world has fallen into madness. Not long after this the world descends deeper into madness with the arrival of toxic red rain that threatens the entire planet and sends the earth back to the middle ages. Simon finds friends in other survivalist, and they soon find out that there is more to this rain than simple global warming or anything else natural. Falconer definitely knows his action for sure. He has a knack for getting you pulled right into the thick of it with his characters, and this is a talent he uses well. I've read the 'Glassford Girl' books before and they were just a whirlwind of action and reaction, and 'Redfall' is no different in that regard. This book was a real delight to read and I don't normally go for action books either. The characters were well rounded and very easy to feel for. And as with his previous books, it isn't just action - there's plenty of mystery in there as well to give the action a direction to head in. It isn't a very long book, but there are sequels so I would recommend this novel for someone who wants a quick but substantial burst of adrenaline and hopefully you'll stay for the next installment.

I haven't read a good book for some time and Redfall: Book 1 by Jay J. Falconer fits this category. I was given a free copy of this book in return for an honest review. This is not the first book I read by Jay Falconer and I can see that the author kept his great and gripping writing style. The book is full of action, adventures, intrigue, conspiracies and lots more. Everything is revealed in multiple threads of action and organised beautifully in chapters. The reader jumps from one thread to another easily. The writer's style is unique and friendly and keeps you glued down and wanting to read more and to see what happens next. I love how the characters are introduced by the author and their life stories and personalities are unraveled along the way. The author also has a great way of depicting what goes through everyone's mind. The characters I liked the most were Simon and Tally. I enjoyed discovering the relationship between Tally and Wyatt which is a typical one between brother and sister: peppered with love, different personalities and lots of tiny fights. The book contains a bit too many acronyms and most of you them you get used to, but less would have been better. However readers of the Glassford girl series (highly recommended) will have a nice and pleasant surprise while reading this book. Towards the end the book gets very intense and leaves you hanging and wanting for more. I cannot wait to read Book 2. I think Redfall would make a great TV series: full of action, suspense, conspiracies and more. Highly recommend this book, it will keep your mind busy and entertain you for long time.

I've only read one other book besides Redfall from Falconer, and I've noticed that he has a great ominous and dark feel to his writing. There are parts to Redfall that I would even categorize as morbid and perversive. He does a great job at portraying anguish and despair. With this being said, I was instantly hooked after reading the memorable description of the Pay-Per-View Execution in the first Chapter. The disheartenment that is projected onto the reader, cannot come from just any great author. The combination of tribulation with science fiction, is what really caught my attention on this book! Of course, there's tons of mystery and intrigue mixed in with everything, which keeps you hooked from the very beginning. On top of all that, Falconer also has an amazing way of describing the intense action scenes. The book is written from many different view points, and it switches throughout each chapter. I found this really drew me into the book. Sometimes to find out what happens to your favorite character, you have to read through a side character first. I can always appreciate an author who can write character and scene breaks properly, keeping the reader hooked. It's not a very long book, so it makes a perfect read for road trips, plane rides, or a rainy day inside. I'm just happy that the second book has already been written, because I'm absolutely hooked on the characters and what's going to happen to them next. This isn't your normal dystopian sic-fi read. I give it 5/5!
